“A case against the former dictator might proceed slowly, but it’s an important one to try, says Reed Brody, counsel for Human Rights Watch and a former prosecutor in Haiti. “It is vital that the Haitian authorities pursue this kind of case because it could show Haitians that the state still functions,” Mr. Brody says.”

“Haiti’s former leader Jean-Claude “Baby Doc” Duvalier has been charged with corruption and embezzlement during his 1971-1986 rule, prosecutors say.  Mr Duvalier was allowed to go free after questioning, but a judge will decide whether his case goes to trial.”

“Amnesty International reconnaît que les accusations contre Jean-Claude Duvalier constitue une mesure positive, mais juge insuffisantes les accusations de corruption, vol et détournement de fonds portées contre l’ex-Président Duvalier.”
